XIT (Dalhart) signing
covers/XITbooth.JPGOn August 4, we attended the XIT Rodeo Reunion in Dalhart, Texas.  Having a booth at the craft fair seemed logical.  After contacting all the appropriate people and obtaining a Texas tax license, I was set.  Dalhart was my first teaching job.  In the fall of 1963, my small apartment sized house sat less than a block north of where my booth was located.  The house is still there.  I had hoped to reconnect with some of my students, but no one admitted to  having been in my classes. 

Another teacher I had known still lives there, and we had a good visit.  Several other people that had some connection or knew some of my husband's family visited with us.

Wind is always expected in the panhandle, but during set-up, several booth covers were blown down.  A light shower had eveyone rushing around to cover merchandise.  Things finally settled, and we had a good crowd after the parade.  Instead of selling in singles, my Corn Cave series was selling in sets.  Since Shadow of the Hawk is set not far from that area, it also sold well.  Two people bought one of everything I had. 

Since then, two people have contacted me.  One of them had bought the series, read it, and ordered the other book.  It was a good trip in every way.
